On June 6, 2013, Chemtura Corporation (Chemtura) announced its Q2 2013 segment
performance and its current outlook for the quarter. Craig A. Rogerson,
Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Chemtura, commented, "With
the first two months of the quarter behind us, we are seeing similar trends in
performance to those we saw in the first quarter of 2013. Three of our four
segments are performing well and are tracking to deliver comparable results to
the second quarter of 2012. However, Industrial Engineered Products continues
to face challenging business conditions." The three well-performing segments
include Industrial Performance Products, Consumer Products, and Chemtura
AgroSolutions. Mr. Rogerson concluded, "With the weakness in Industrial
Engineered Products, we now project to fall short of our performance in the
second quarter of 2012 on a continuing operations basis. We are encouraged
that the performance of this segment appears to be 'bottoming' this quarter
and anticipate improving results over the second half of 2013." The Full
